About the Artist(s)

All About Jazz calls leading San Francisco Saxophonist/Composer Michael Zilber “one of the true masters of modern jazz saxophone, his prodigious talents evidenced by his recordings and live performances are truth. For these shows, his stellar group features Seattle greats Marc Seales on piano and Jeff Johnson on bass, Vancouver’s brilliant Bernie Arai on drums and special guest and Ellington/Strayhorn authority the supremely lyrical Alan Matheson on trumpet. Billy Strayhorn, Ellington’s composing partner for 30 years, is widely considered one of the genius composers of jazz, and the group will be putting its own twist on some of his most beautiful pieces. With Al Matheson – trumpet, Marc Seales – piano, Jeff Johnson – bass and Bernie Arai -drums
